I made a purple Kaukau. Let me know what you think!

My reason for making the Kaukau is that I have every other color and wanted a customers color.

The mask is dyed, not painted, so it's a nice even color through the mask.

More pics.

Comparison with other Kaukaus:

Sorry if this is in the wrong section, but it is a bionicle creation...

Anyway, let me know what you think.

Nicely done- looks great. It seems that this one is a bit more bluish-tinted, too, while another one that I've seen was more reddish purple. (I like this better. :P )

I had seen the people one that purple kaukau created by someone here. That mask was actually the inspiration for this, but I wanted it a darker shade.

This mask was actually my second attempt, the first one came out different. And yes, it is slightly pinkish white.

But I have to say, I'm very happy with how this turned out.

Very pretty, lovely completion of the Kaukau rainbow. Is the pink-lemonade version translucent or more solid colour?

The trans color of purple reminds me of grapes and grape juice. Preety great job in dying it. It looks like it can pass as an authentic Bionicle Mask that was never sold.

The pink mask is a more solid color, but light can pass through it.

I might be convinced to part with it if you're interested... To me it just reminds me of failure (plus I have nothing to use the mask for)

Based on people's reactions to this, and Pms I have been receiving, I'm starting to consider making a one time run of these and selling them.

People seem to be really liking this.

I was thinking about doing this sort of thing myself, but the best commercial polycarbonate dyes, RIT dyes, no longer can dye polycarbonate, so I have to find another source.

To anyone wondering how I made this. I found some vintage rit dye and hot water.

The pink lemonade kau kau was made differently,by accident and I don't feel comfortable telling people how to make it.

Yes they do, but they changed the formula and it no longer will dye plastic.

I haven't tried anything other than rit. But I from my research it seems dylon brand dye can work on plastic, but I can't guarantee it.

For the first attempt, did you happen to use kool aid and vinegar? I hear that works on fabrics, but I don't know if it works on plastics.

It seems like a plausible method to me. Have you Googled it?

I did, though it doesn't seem like it. I'm thinking about trying some experiments with it, though.

I'm adding a purple kaukau to my list of "masks that I want but aren't actual set pieces". That would look boss on a being of gravity.

It doesn't look like it. I tried super concentrating it with only hot acetone, and only one piece took on a very slight shade. I did use only nail polish remover, so that may be why it didn't dye

Custom masks like this always make me happy. It looks very spiffy, and pretty much exactly like what an official trans-purple Kaukau would be. :)
